Hey Everyone -

Just a note that I will be out in Western PA trying to find elk this weekend. Last year, when I was there last, there was no cell signal that I can recall. If that is the case, then I will not be updating the news as it takes quite a bit of time to put together.

I will be back Sunday night and will probably not update the articles until Monday...unless I get a good wifi signal. :P

James

My recollection about Benezette was correct. There were some places where I was able to get a weak wifi signal - but not long enough to do the news. Here are the headlines for today:

A Shrine That Seems to Tame Old Faithful
The view from the cathedral-size windows of the new $27 million visitor center that opened here last week leads down a paved path toward a gently curved mound of rock. A mist of hissing steam drifts from the mound, but every 90 minutes or so, water starts to spurt fitfully, then more aggressively, until it erupts into a tower as high as 180 feet, whose spray may be spread by the breeze toward the hundreds of viewers gathered to watch the spectacle.
